In the New York Times bestselling sequel to Soman Chainani's debut, The School for Good and Evil, Sophie and Agatha are back in Gavaldon, living out their Happily Ever After, but life isn't quite the fairy tale they expected.

Witches and princesses reside at the School for Girls, where they've been inspired to live a life without princes, while Tedros and the boys are camping in Evil's old towers. A war is brewing between the schools, but can Agatha and Sophie restore the peace? Can Sophie stay good with Tedros on the hunt? And whose heart does Agatha's belong to—her best friend or her prince?

Soman Chainani has created a spectacular world that Newbery Medal-winning author Ann M. Martin calls "a fairy tale like no other, complete with romance, magic, humor, and a riddle that will keep you turning pages until the end."

    I wanted to read this book because I fell in love with the first one. This book shows how far someone will go for love and revenge. Everything is different, the two schools are now for boys and girls. It makes you wonder if Sophie and Agatha were put properly.

      After all the drama with Teddy, the girls have finally decided that they can just return home and find their Ever After with each other. But at home, many things have changed and their families are not quite as welcoming, and the girls are not happy with just each other for company. I recommend this series!!!

        I love this book. This is one of my favorite series, and I love to read. I have re-read this book multiple times and the author of this book is amazing. I don't think there is a better series, and I have read Harry Potter and Percy Jackson, and this series is better than both. If I could rate this book 1 billion stars, I would.

          I love this series! I've read all of them, and the 3rd one is by far the best. I recommend this way more than a thousand times!

                  I read the first book and it was pretty good! I started this one and was disappointed. I haven't finished it yet but I think it's slower than the other one. Besides, I don't think the girls are thinking this whole 'no boys' thing through...

                      I know... I really liked the sentence, "... Good with Good, Evil with Evil... Both of their wishes granted." quoted by The School of Good and Evil: A World Without Princes. It just had the perfect touch to the ending, like it was the big final bow/ribbon to the gift, it just wrapped it up into the perfect ending...

                        I know, right? Sadly, I read the second book but I didn't read the first one, so I'm like, how is Sophie a witch?
